Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Does every second count?

since tuning, stage banter ,equipment failures and neceesent feedback was afairly constant thing it just irked the crap out of me how they on a given night could not get it together.Most of the time where you didn't see this happen is when they are formally introduced and not just happen to slip on stage.Besides that's what sound checks are for. Tune the instruments, get levels set, to do some run throughs and viola your ready to play.You never saw the Stones dick around on stage waiting for some obscure cue to appear, no, Charlie counted off and they whittled off 35 songs w/o a problem.To finally answer the question I would like it straight music but then cut a cd of banter and see how rediculous it is and how hard it is to listen to and how it can drive some people nuts.
